[ applause ] and let us trust, as difficult as that is, with our doubt and our fears, let us turn to him. let us ask him for the hope that we need to see in the midst of this darkness a new day dawning here in our community of aurora. in the wake of a tragedy like this, the conversation often turns to moving on, to getting back to our daily lives. but the gospel speaks comforting words in this time of sorrow and tells us very clearly, blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. and thank you for the banner in the back, angels walk with those who grieve.

[ applause ] and so we return to our lives, let us see in this tragedy a reminder that our lives are fleeting and that they are a precious gift. they are a gift from god, a grace and they are given to us to glorify god, both in the short time that we have on earth and forever an eternity in heaven and let us glorify god and our love for him and let us glorify god and our love for one another and let us glorify god by responding to all violence by peace and to all evil with love.

will outspend us in this election but we can't allow them to outwork us. we will re-elect president obama. are you ready? [ applause ] we must engage in the political system but that isn't enough. to help students succeed in these challenging times, we must also harness the strength of our association to take charge of the teaching profession. we need to support our members to define what good teaching looks like so others can't reduce good teaching to standardized tests. we must have a real say, a real say, in how educators are prepared, trained and evaluated. we are all leaders in our union and in our profession. we know how to bargain for a contract, how to mobilize our members for an election, how to advocate for legislation and obviously we need to keep doing all of those things with the attacks that are coming, we must do it and do it well. but my question to you is this. are we willing to assert our leadership and take responsibility for our professions? the demands of our work are changing as our students change and as the world around us is changing too fast, it is time for us to

voice of america. steve redisch will join us. >> told phil talked of a leak types in different cities. berchtold he talked to a hold a wide range of people. explore the countryside here he wanted to and understand what makes american stick. he had read that americans were individualistic. he actually saw us as much more collectivist this. it seems hard for us to imagine. he saw the u.s. as a group of people who like to form associations. who wanted to always be with other people. after he went to the u.s., he saw the french as the individualists. from that, he concluded that he was going to put up his colossal statute. he was going to have to say something to people who understood themselves as a big group. as a society. as a collective entity. >> watch this whole event as part of our lineup. it includes a discussion on how social media has changed the news coverage. commencement speeches from new york mayor, cory booker, and he long must -- elon musk. that starts at 8:00 p.m. eastern on c-span. >> we had pulled into the spot that morning. >> the former commanding officer of th

sure what is considered an adequate or three a project directive. maybe this training will help us understand that. also, it is helpful anyway. >> perhaps we can discuss the benefits. i will definitely appreciate it. >> good afternoon, commissioners. i will share a few items with you regarding yesterday's historic preservation commission hearing. the commission will meet only one time this month because of the july 4 holiday. yesterday, they reviewed and unanimously approved an expansion and rehabilitation of the contributing building to the market in the conservation district. the planning commission will review the entitlement associated with this project. the commission also completed its review of the entitlements for the veterans, the memorial complex across the street. there were two components to the review. the exteriors of the building is landmarked. the interior is not included, but the designating the ordinance requires to provide review and comment to the board of trustees of any major alterations that occurred to the interior spaces. after about an hour of public testi
in place of how we work with them. one of the things we do is we asked people -- what do you want to use a computer for? i cannot tell you how many people tell us they have never been asked that. they have been told they need to use a computer, but no one has told the what they need it for. sometimes we hear that people do not have anything they want to use it for, but a lot of times, they have something in particular. we tried to focus on something that will give them early success. so they are going to be able to have some success with the computer. if someone wants to be able to e-mail their grandchildren so they can get pictures of their grandkids, they will be motivated to push past their technology fear for that. at least i keep telling my mother that. but we also have to recognize that one of the things that happens is people come in who have been using technology, and they have their own systems for use in it, and we let them. we do not try to change how people are using it. an example of that is my grandmother. she was a wonderful baker. i miss her, but i miss her baked goods mo
in who have been using technology, and they have their own systems for use in it, and we let them. we do not try to change how people are using it. an example of that is my grandmother. she was a wonderful baker. i miss her, but i miss her baked goods more. she never had used a still in the old country that had thermostat. she would turn the stove on all the way to broil, and it would heat up like a furnace, and then she would turn it off, and then put her stuff in and cook it. if it got too cold, she would turn it on again. it drove my parents crazy, but she made wonderful food. she was never going to learn this technology, but she had adapted to it. we recognize that people do that. if people have something that works, you leave it alone. another issue that people have on computers is -- and it is a real frustration for a lot of seniors -- that things do not show up in the same place. we try to set up people's computers so that it is recognizable. if you are using a macintosh, and it has the dock that has all the controls on it, you set it up so that it is always visible. you put the i
to the ordinance. introducing a policy credits program and extending for institutional uses, retaining the frame for inactive uses, providing collection and appeal authority in certain cases and clarifying the use of the application for the provision. we are recommending introducing a program, and just as a reminder, there is a policy credit proposed. there is assisting ability fee revenue to fund the credit program. it is intended to encourage and help meet certain policy objectives of the city. it would allow certain projects to be waived or reduced fees under the program. the categories of program eligible for this credit includes non form of retail and vacant space. those less than the maximum amount of parking, the affordable housing projects and small residential projects designed are those with 20 units or less. the credits would be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. the board has generally supported the concept of a policy credits program. they did establish a cap, they felt it was important to recognize the development project has an impact on the transportation system as a
fourth floor looking out the window with his camera. took a picture, looked at it, send it to us, we had it on the air and a couple of minutes. because of technology, because of things changing so rapidly. it is a brand new world. vicki, thank you for the importance of that network and everything else. thank you. next, i want to introduce you to a gentleman. he is tall, dark, handsome. sorry, that was me. wrong script. [laughter] you, too, right? it's your birthday, right? ok. in all seriousness, a gentleman by the name of dmitri is here. i want you to meet him. his name is dmitri belzer. he has worked in the disability community for years providing technology access for more than 30 years. trained as a sign language expert and interpreter, he established a death services program ast san francisco state university, provided support services for colleges. we don't call them disabled. they happen to have a disability. he joined pacific bell, helped organize honda the advisory group for people that happen to have a disability. he gave them put to that company on how to develop featu

by those who are loaning us money will erode. we won't be able to control that time, but one thing we know is that when it comes, it will come quickly. it's a scary thought. we see greece. we see europe. you saw this week spain and italy. and you see a problem of debt, de-leveraging, for which they have no answer, and then we see what happened this week in terms of the security of the united states in terms of our own finances, and what you realize is that we're the best looking horse in the glue factory. [ laughter ] we're the only rosebud that isn't starting to wilt. and so our -- the comfort that we've experiencing today is really based on a relative comfort based on how the world is viewed everywhere else but here. europe's troubles will give us a reprieve, but they won't solve our problems. that's why leadership is so important, and -- and let me step aside for a minute. all the republican candidates in the primary i knew. i knew them well, from newt gingrich, to ron paul, to tim pawlenty, to rick santorum, and as a conservative i endorsed mitt romney. and as a physician i want to tel
or reach out to us on facebook or twitter and we >> good morning, everybody. welcome to the technology summit. we are looking forward to a fantastic day. we are going to start with a demonstration of the wii system. it is an interactive gaming system that allows people to play different activities and participate in different fitness activities together. a lot of wii systems, about 40, are being deployed around the city to different senior centers and residents facilities to encourage older adults to get more involved with physical activity using technology. we're going to spend the first 30 minutes or so demonstrating the wii. not only will we demonstrate how to use it, but we will doe demonstrate adaptive devices so that it can be an inclusive activity for all adults and children. my name is dr. chris thompson from the university of san francisco. go, dons. 1855. i have not been there that long. i am in the department of exercise and sports science. i think it is a good match for me to be demonstrating the wii, which is a good physical activity. i am joined on the s
one of the real stalwarts in the u.s. senate. i'm honored to be here, senator tom coburn is the person i'm privileged to introduce. he and his wife carolyn have a great history in oklahoma for all of the accomplishments in their lives. of course one of the greatest would be their three children and six grandchildren. outside of that, mr. coburn and his wife are both graduates of oklahoma state university and i'm sure along with t. boone pickens they want to see a national championship come their way. senator coburn has a track record of a lot of wins in other areas. these wins would be found with his family, faith, business, formerly he was in the u.s. house, then the senate, and as a medical doctor. he's a man of integrity. people know that he is a man of his word, when he says he's going to do something, he does it. when he pledged he was going to be in the house for six years he lived up to that term limits pledge and i think he was the only republican to ever hold the seat up 'til that time in the previously democratic second district of oklahoma and then he was elected as we know
that happens is people come in who have been using technology, and they have their own systems for use in it, and we let them. we do not try to change how people are using it. an example of that is my grandmother. she was a wonderful baker. i miss her, but i miss her baked goods more. she never had used a still in the old country that had thermostat. she would turn the stove on all the way to broil, and it would heat up like a furnace, and then she would turn it off, and then put her stuff in and cook it. if it got too cold, she would turn it on again. it drove my parents crazy, but she made wonderful food. she was never going to learn this technology, but she had adapted to it. we recognize that people do that. if people have something that works, you leave it alone. another issue that people have on computers is -- and it is a real frustration for a lot of seniors -- that things do not show up in the same place. we try to set up people's computers so that it is recognizable. if you are using a macintosh, and it has the dock that has all the controls on it, you set it up so that it is alway
at 911 is appropriate, use 553-0123. i did not know that. that is a direct line where you can get an ambulance. we also talked about -- the commander talked about -- your relationship with your police officer. the captain said he intends to start a monthly meeting with the nightclub owners at the station. he does not want security. he wants to meet with the owners of the night clubs once a month. that is a fantastic idea. i want to plug that around to all of the stations, certainly the ones that have a number of night clubs in their area, so that that can become a routine relationship. if a capt. changes, which happens all the time, that can also continue, regardless of what capt. is there. those were the big ones. some discussion about risk-reward in using promoters. there was the resolution to this issue but it is something that you should leave here thinking about. some people chimed in to say that there is not a dime that they would not bother turning using a promoter if they thought there was some risk involved in that. obviously, other people feel differently. that risk- rew
the hard work we do with our students who are our highest priority. this was also a reminder to us that we have got some things coming up. we're doing it to your budget in two years and we're looking at a prop h renewal and a children's fund renewal. i do not want us to sit idle on this and as my colleagues have clearly articulated, we have to be strong and continued to advocate for funding from the states so our city does not have to continue to augment what they cannot provide. and we have to make sure that we continue to keep our nose to the grindstone and do the hard work that we do. and continue to thank our voters who support us in the ways they do because we're going to -- we have got to -- two large funds that have helped us through many years and we would not able to get through these terrible budget times without it. just a heartfelt thank you to all of our san franciscans who continued to support our school district and to the city for all their continued support as well. i am a little curious if we have the kind of list of what we would restore should any special money comes fa
